Getting a listing is a protection certainly, though a C is buildings of local interest and I suspect will not afford much protection were it to get in the way. I don’t think it will mean anything for developments nearby. You could research it’s history to see if anything comes up that could get it to a B or even an A, but I guess it would need to be in pretty good condition for that.
Best wishes

I tried looking up an image of this Mausoleum and all I can find is a four walled structure that looks like a run down church. Not sure how that would correspond to a Mausoleum definition except if the locals have called it one. The pictures I saw, showed a very uncared for building in which sheep and cattle are being kept. As the proposed development is in the field next door, it is hard to see how one might object. If the building was popular with the locals, or cared for, or if there was any proposal underway to restore it so that the public can visit it, or of historic or architectural importance then perhaps you might cause them to pause. But it doesn’t look like any of these apply. Even then, if the proposal is in the field next door, then that might actually afford some kind of protection on the Mausoleum until a generation comes along that actually cares about these buildings.
Our charity is not about fighting planning proposals, but about researching the history of mausolea. If you have any details of this, and any recent photographs, please do send them to us and I will gladly put them on our “Scottish Mausoleum” Facebook Page. In that way, you can gather support for your cause much more easily and ask others to contribute research and help for your campaign.
I may ask the trustees to visit the site in the next few weeks to see if we can come up with anything.
Hope that helps

Best of luck

Field next to mausoleum at fordmouth bridge,(Wilson) has a planning application for 20,000 solar panels pending. Any help as to the argument for protecting the view and setting of this mausoleum and final resting ground of souls within would be gratefully received. Thank you
